Late December Back In '63

I know, I know, it's not late December. It's still early, thank goodness, but that's not how the song goes, and I didn't want to wait to get this share from 2006 back on your radar. This is one of a series of Christmas records put out by E.F MacDonald during the sixties. I don't have them all, but I wish I did. This particular one features some recitations by Burgess Meredith and music by Joe Reisman. Trust me when I say it's good stuff. But you don't have to trust me, just download it and see for yourself. Here is The E.F. MacDonald Company Presents Christmas Classics 1963 (E.F. MacDonald EFMX-63, Stereo, 1963).

1. A Visit From St. Nicholas-Burgess Meredith With Joe Reisman's Orchestra & Chorus
2. Is There A Santa Claus?-Burgess Meredith With Joe Reisman's Orchestra & Chorus
3. The Little Match Girl-Burgess Meredith With Joe Reisman's Orchestra & Chorus
4. O Tannenbaum (O Christmas Tree)-Joe Reisman's Orchestra & Chorus
5. Les Agnes Dans Nos Campagnes (Angels We Have Heard On High)-Joe Reisman's Orchestra & Chorus
6. Dormi, Dormi, O Bel Bambin (Sleep, Sleep, Sweet Babe Of Mine)-Joe Reisman's Orchestra & Chorus
7. Fum, Fum, Fum (Foom, Foom, Foom)-Joe Reisman's Orchestra & Chorus
8. Twelve Days Of Christmas-Joe Reisman's Orchestra & Chorus
